@wlookup no more in alphabetical order

Postby johansamuelsson » Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:56 pm

Hi

In Eviews 11 @wlookup don't returns the string list of the selected objects in alphabetical order, which was the case in Eviews 10. This can cause some major problems, at least for us.

If I run the code below in Eviews 11 then the string "a" is "A3 A2 A4 A1", while the same string in Eviews 10 (more correctly) is "A1 A2 A3 A4"

Code: Select all

wfcreate u 1
string a1
string a2
string a3
string a4
string a = @wlookup("*","string")
show a


Is it possible to adjust this?

We’ll look into it, but if your code requires a list be sorted, it is probably safest to sort the list.

Thank's Gareth

We will try to sort the strings in the future. However, we have a lot of current code so we would appreciate if @wlookup could be fixed.

Regards Johan
